Bye Bye Intel
The Intel GPU machines have been sold. They were 6 x Intel Core i7-8700 with 32GB of memory. That leaves room on the wire shelving units for the ARM server and moving the 2nd storage server.

I spent the day removing network and power cables from behind and beneath the shelving units. I removed a 16 port switch from the network and the cabling for the Pis has been consolidated to another 16 port switch. I used a lot of zip ties to bundle the network cabling together once the redundant ones had been extricated.

I now need to get another 10GbE switch so I can run the ARM and 2nd storage servers. They both have 10GbE NICs and while I have a couple of free ports on the current switch its on the other side of the room, so I have to run cables and there will be few devices on that shelving unit all wanting 10GbE connectivity.
